As part of a Historical Fiction unit, 5th graders in Westfield Public Schools read "Number the Stars" by Lois Lowry, a historical fiction novel that follows a friendship between a Jewish girl and a Christian girl in Copenhagen and their journey to freedom during World War II. Recent virtual presentations on the Holocaust provided students with important real-life context to these classroom experiences.
WHS seniors who attended Lincoln School's inaugural kindergarten classes in 2008-09 recently gathered outside of WHS for a special commemorative photo session.
Save the Date! On Tuesday, April 13, 2021 from 7:00-8:30 p.m., the Westfield Public School District, in partnership with the Westfield Education Fund (WEF), will host a virtual community learning night for parents of elementary and middle school students. The event will be interactive and will focus on learning practical strategies for having conversations about race with children. Those interested in attending can learn more and register for the event by visiting the Racial Literacy page under “Family Resources” at www.westfieldnjk12.org.
Wednesday, April 14 is the deadline to submit nominations for the 2021 Charles Philhower Fellowship Award. The award was established in 1993 by the Rotary Club of Westfield to recognize an outstanding full-time elementary teacher in the Westfield Public Schools and to honor the late Westfield Rotarian and former School Superintendent Charles Philhower.
As the district celebrates Read Across America Day/Week (and reading in general), Lincoln School has created a Storywalk on the playground, an ingenious way to enjoy reading and the outdoors at the same time.
Since the summer of 2012, students and staff have looked forward to attending STEM Camp. Unfortunately, due to the health and safety concerns relating to COVID-19, the district will not be offering the camp this summer. The district has discussed alternatives such as a virtual camp but remote STEM Camp would not come close to the experiences we have provided over the years. We look forward to when we can offer our popular in-person STEM Camp in the future.
